Tommy Hilfiger to Auction off Major Artwork by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and More

Pulled from the iconic designer’s personal collection.

Tommy Hilfiger is set to sell five major pieces of art created by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst and Jean Dubuffet. The American fashion doyen culled the famous artwork from his own personal collection which he started alongside his fashion career—spanning a total of three decades as per Bloomberg. “I like to buy and sell all the time,” Hilfiger said. “I’m very interested in knowing who’s who, and what something is worth, and whether or not it would have a resale value … I never want to buy something and just leave it in storage.”

Here are the major works of art that Hilfiger is putting up for auction along with their estimated cost:

Jean Dubuffet’s Le Gommeux (1972) — $700,000 to $1 million USD.

Keith Haring’s Snake and Man; Dogs and Men (1983) — $700,000 to $1 million USD.

Ten of Andy Warhol’s Cowboys and Indians (1986) — $250,000 to $350,000 USD.

Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Untitled (Devil’s Head) (1987) — $3 million to $5 million USD.

Damien Hirst’s Disintegration – The Crown of Life (2006) — $1 million to $1.5 million USD.

Phillips’s 20th Century & Contemporary Art evening sale will launch this November 16. Head over to the official auction page to learn more.
